With aviation dramas, it’s the thrill factor and visual spectacle that the director creates, that promise an edge-of-the-seat experience. Ajay Devgn’s latest directorial, Runway 34 lands perfectly in these departments. The film is inspired by true events from 2015 when a Doha to Kochi flight had a narrow escape after facing difficulties to land at the airport due to bad weather and low visibility. However, in many places, you’d also notice several resemblances to Hollywood films like Sully and Flight. Yet, Runway 34 succeeds as a gripping story and a great cinematic experience. The story revolves around Captain Vikrant Khanna (Ajay Devgn) and first officer Tanya Albuquerque (Rakul Preet Singh), who face the wrath of an investigation and interrogation by Narayan Vedant (Amitabh Bachchan) following a May Day call they make before landing an aircraft in turbulent conditions and risking the lives of 150 passengers. Whether or not the pilots would come out clean and justify their decision is what forms the crux of the story. Runway 34 keeps you engrossed and makes you feel the turbulence while you’re seated comfortably. It’s edgy, fast-paced, engaging, and serves you a big-screen cinematic experience that won’t disappoint.
